SPECIFIC EMBODIMENTS

[0019] A housing of an electronic product with a non-removable battery built therein of the embodiment of the present document, as shown in FIG. 1, includes: a front shell 6 located at the front of the housing; a battery cover 1 located at the back of the housing; a rear shell 2 located between the front shell 6 and the battery cover 1; a battery compartment formed by connecting the rear shell 2 and the battery cover 1; a non-removable battery 7 arranged in the battery compartment; and an anti-removal assembly used for connecting the battery cover 1 to the rear shell 2 to prevent the battery 7 from being removed after the battery cover 1 is removed.

[0020] Herein, the front shell 6, the rear shell 2 and the battery cover 1 are connected to form a space for accommodating and protecting an inner structure of the housing of the electronic product.

[0021] As shown in FIG. 1, a mainboard 8 is arranged in the space formed by connecting the front shell 6 and the rear shell 2. The mainboard 8 can be anti-removal. The specific approach is to paste a fragile sticker on a front-back-shell locking screw (not shown in the figure) hidden within the housing of the electronic product and used for connecting the front shell 6 and the rear shell 2.

[0022] The battery 7 is arranged in the battery compartment formed by connecting the rear shell 2 and the battery cover 1. The battery 7 is a non-removable battery. The battery 7 of the utility model can be anti-removal. The specific approach is to arrange the anti-removal assembly which prevents the battery cover 1 covering the battery 7 from being removed.

[0023] As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the anti-removal assembly includes: a battery cover connection plate 12 extending inwards within the housing from an inwall of the battery cover 1, in order to connect the battery cover 1 to the rear shell 2; and a screw 5 used for connecting the battery cover connection plate 12 to the rear shell 2. Herein, the rear shell 2 is provided with a screw hole 21 for connecting the battery cover connection plate 12.

[0024] The anti-removal assembly also includes: a fragile sticker 4 pasted on a screw cap of the screw 5; and a sidewall plug 3 installed in the screw hole 21 and located above the screw 5. The sidewall plug 3 is used for hiding the screw 5 and plays a role of protecting the screw 5 and the fragile sticker 4, and guarantees the product appearance to be nice-looking.

[0025] Specifically, in order to make the battery cover connection plate 12 and the rear shell 2 be connected firmly, a BOSS pillar 12a corresponding to the screw hole 21 is arranged at the battery cover connection plate 12.

[0026] When the rear shell 2 and the battery cover connection plate 12 are connected, firstly, the screw 5 orderly passes through the screw hole 21 and the BOSS pillar 12a located below the screw hole 21, thereby completes fastening the rear shell 2 and the battery cover connection plate 12. Secondly, the fragile sticker 4 is pasted on the screw cap of the screw 5. Since a torn fragile sticker 4 is invalid, a user cannot privately remove the screw 5, thereby preventing the battery cover 1 from being removed from the rear shell 2 to exposure the battery 7, and preventing the battery 7 from being damaged by the user. At last, the sidewall plug 3 is stuffed into the screw hole 21 to hide the screw 5 pasted with the fragile sticker 4.

[0027] In order to make the battery cover connection plate 12 and the rear shell 2 be connected reliably and conveniently, an extension direction of the battery cover connection plate 12 of the embodiment of the utility model is parallel to a connection plane of the rear shell 2 connecting with the battery cover connection plate 12, and a location of the battery cover connection plate 12 is adjacent to the connection plane of the rear shell 2 connecting with the battery cover connection plate. In this way, it is easy to install the screw 5 used for connecting the battery cover connection plate 12 and the rear shell 2, and saves the space within the housing as well.

[0028] Furthermore, in order to make the anti-removal assembly be installed reliably, the screw hole 21 is designed as a stepped hole. Pore diameters of the screw hole 21 decrease progressively from outside to inside. The screw hole 21 includes: a first hole 21a located at the outermost layer and used for installing the sidewall plug 3, a pore diameter of the first hole 21a is the longest; a second hole 21b located at the middle layer and used for accommodating the screw cap of the screw 5; and a third hole 21c located at the innermost layer and used for screwing in a screw body of the screw 5, a pore diameter of the third hole 21c is the shortest.

[0029] The size of the sidewall plug 3 is matched with the first hole 21a. When the sidewall plug 3 is stuffed into the first hole 21a, the outwall of the rear shell 2 provided with the screw hole 21 is smooth and flat, and the product appearance is nice-looking.

[0030] The screw hole 21 of the embodiment of the utility model may be arranged beside a card slot for installing an SIM card according to the actual requirements, and it may be arranged independently. When the screw hole 21 is arranged beside the card slot for the SIM card, a sidewall plug shared by the card slot and the screw hole 21 may be made.

[0031] Though the utility model has been described in detail above, the utility model is not limited to that. The people skilled in the art can make modifications according to the principle of the utility model. Therefore, various modifications made according to the principle of the utility model all should be considered to fall into the protection scope of the utility model.
